Parker's first collection of short stories, "Enough Rope," was published in 1926 and was an instant success. The book contains 25 stories, each of which offers a unique and often hilarious take on love, marriage, sex, and other aspects of modern life. Parker's writing is characterized by its wit, sophistication, and biting satire, and her characters are often complex and unforgettable.

One of the most famous stories in "Enough Rope" is "The Telephone Call," which follows a young woman as she waits for a phone call from her lover. The story is a masterpiece of suspense and irony, and it perfectly captures the anxiety and anticipation of waiting for someone you love.

Another popular story in the collection is "Big Blonde," which tells the story of a beautiful but shallow woman who is unable to find happiness in life. The story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of valuing appearance over substance, and it is still relevant today.

In addition to her short stories, Parker also wrote poems and essays. Her poems are often witty and satirical, and they offer a glimpse into her personal life and her views on the world. Her essays are more serious in tone, and they often explore the complexities of human relationships.

Parker's work has been praised by critics and readers alike for its wit, honesty, and insight. She is considered one of the most important American writers of the 20th century, and her work continues to be read and enjoyed by readers around the world.

If you are looking for a witty, poignant, and enduring literary classic, then I highly recommend Dorothy Parker's "Enough Rope." This collection of short stories is sure to entertain, provoke thought, and stay with you long after you finish it.
